Almanac Football: IMPACT Anzac Day Cup Tournament

The Osaka Dingoes are hosting their IMPACT Anzac Day Cup Tournament on Saturday, 21 April at the Izumi Sports Village in the wider Osaka Region.

All participating teams will be playing against eachopposing team once and a Grand Final will be held to decide the winner of the tournament.


The tournament will be held between 1 pm and 5 pm. If you are around Osaka on that day, why not come out and watch some of our games!

At Dingoes trainings, my improvements have been observed and I got positive feedback from my coach Matt. I hope I will be a goal kicker like Stephen Milne.


On Friday, the fractured left finger’s bone was confirmed. It happened at the end of February, but is on mend. The injury doesn’t stop me going on the training or practising on my own. Even I have been practising everyday this week.

  1. You’re a tough one Yoshi kun! Hope your finger heals quickly. I’m looking forward to hearing more about the ANZAC Day tournament. Go Dingoes!

  2. Cheers Jarrod! My finger is slightly healing, but having to do food preparation and to cook deep fried beef where I have to wear rubber gloves and take off a cast and bandages slows down the healing… I will report the tournament here too. Thanks for your great supports mate!
